'Hannibal' Season 2 premiere set for February on new night
NBC announced on Thursday (Dec. 19) that Season 2 of the critically acclaimed Bryan Fuller drama would premiere on Friday, Feb. 28 at 10 p.m. ET. The Friday timeslot marks a new home for the series starring Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy, shifting from its Thursday spot in Season 1.
The 13-episode season makes a sensible fit on NBC's Friday night genre block, following "Grimm" and replacing the soon-to-be-concluded "Dracula."
"Bryan and his team are running on all creative cylinders once again and have delivered episodes full of intrigue, scares and surprises," NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke says in a statement announcing the premiere. "The show continues to astound us with its incredible aesthetic beauty and its amazingly talented cast."
